Ayah (آية ʾāyatun, plural Ayat آيات ʾāyātun) is the Arabic word for sign or miracle, cognate with Hebrew ot (אות), means sign. The word usually refers to each one of the 6236 verses [1] found in the Qur'an (6348 ayat counting the basmalas). Muslims regard each ayah of the Qur'an as a sign from Allah. The word Ayat is also used by Christian in countries with strong Arabic language influence, such as Indonesian Christian.

The verse number in a symbol is written at the end of each verse. This symbol is ۝, end of Ayah. Its Unicode number is U+06DD and ۝۝۝۝ also denotes the end of a sura.

There are two types of Ayah, 1- Ayah having order in it is ("Mohkumaat") and 2-("mutashabihaat") meaning resembling ayats. [2]. The word mutashabeh means similar. [3].
